Royal Gramma?

Hello All! I just bought a Royal Gramma on Sat. which I put in a 10 gal QT. How long should I keep him in the QT until I move him to the 55gal tank? And how do I move him into the tank?

So far I have:
1 Longnose Butterfly
2 Damsels
2 Clown
1 Goby

What is my limit on the amount of fish I should have in the 55gal tank?

From what I've read, you should QT for a minimum of four weeks or it's not worth doing.

It really depends on the size and type of fish. You will be OK with that list and maybe more depending on what it is.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but those damsels may kill the RG. Mine did.
